Announcements for Sunday, November 11, 2018
As you have likely noticed, the chanting this morning is accompanied by the kirtan group instead of harmonium only as we usually have on Sundays. We hope to include kirtan from time-to-time in Sunday services so all can experience a taste of devotional kirtan chanting, which is a part of our long meditations at least once-per-month.
Our 2018 General Membership Meeting will be held today after the Sunday Services. All are invited and welcome to attend. We plan to start at 12:15 and will end no later than 2 p.m.
On Sunday, November 18th after the service, we will have our annual Shoeboxes of Joy packing and wrapping party. A list of needed items is on the Helping Hearts bulletin board in the Social Room. Please join us in the Social Room to wrap and assemble boxes of needed items to be given to the elderly and disabled who are isolated from family and friends during the holiday season. The wrapped and filled boxes are distributed by Catholic Community Services volunteers. We will provide boxes, wrapping paper, and instructions for packing. All donations of items on the list or any empty shoe boxes will be greatly appreciated – if you bring these items in early, please place them under the Information Table. Light snacks will be provided. We hope to see you there.
Our Thursday evening service on November 22 is canceled because of Thanksgiving.
All are warmly invited for our three pre-Christmas 4-hour kirtan meditations.Our first pre-Christmas 4-hr kirtan meditation is on Saturday Nov 24th from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m.. Note the evening timing for these three meditations and that each will be preceded by group Energization Exercises at 4:40 p.m. The usual 10 a.m. meditation on those days is cancelled.
The subject for today’s service is, “Realizing God in Daily Life”.
